When a violent tsunami devastates the coast Oona and Will are already safe. Will wanders for days and days without food or water through the wild jungle, populated by dangerous animals and malicious poachers. Will he manage to survive? Fortunately, he’s never alone: with him is Oona, his inseparable companion.
